Delicious Strawberry Apple Smoothie with Ginger

By Jodee Weiland

Sometimes when I feel the urge to have something sweet, I turn to a smoothie. I do this because a smoothie made with fruit and other nutritional ingredients can satisfy my craving and still be healthy for me. It’s times like this that I find myself putting together something like my Delicious Strawberry Apple Smoothie with Ginger.

Fresh fruits are always a healthy addition to any smoothie. I will sometimes wash and freeze fresh fruit for a smoothie I want to make. That’s what I did here with some fresh strawberries. That gives texture to my recipe without adding ice because my frozen strawberries become my ice in a way. Then I will usually add a fresh apple along with fruit juice to the mixture giving it even more texture. That along with grated ginger makes this smoothie a refreshing, tasty, and naturally sweet treat without any added sugar or honey. This particular smoothie is dairy free as well.

Delicious Strawberry Apple Smoothie with Ginger

1 cup fresh strawberries frozen
1 medium Granny Smith apple cored
1/2 cup unsweetened pure black cherry juice
1/2 teaspoon fresh ginger grated

This recipe makes one smoothie. Put the above ingredients into a blender. Blend the mixture together until smooth. When done, pour into a glass and serve.

My Delicious Strawberry Apple Smoothie with Ginger has 264 calories, 8 grams of fiber, and is rich in vitamins and other healthy nutrients. Because there is no dairy, it is fat free. For me, this is a perfect smoothie for a snack or as a refresher before or after working out. I love a good smoothie and with the warmer weather approaching soon, a cool refreshing smoothie will be even more appreciated by most of us. So give this a try, and enjoy!

    • I love smoothies in the morning or any time! This one is really delicious and so healthy. I’m sure you will both like it. Thanks for stopping by to chat!

    • Thanks! I think it would be delicious with cranberry juice as well. I use black cherry juice because it’s slightly tart and for the health benefits, but cranberry juice just adds a different group of health benefits and a slightly different flavor, so either would be fine, I’m sure.
